Move-In Information

We are developing a staggered move-in process for on-campus housing with a no-contact check-in process. For on-campus housing, students will have a one hour window to move into their assigned living quarters. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, HRE specified a four hour timeframe for all students living on campus to complete the move-in process. Consistent with federal and state public health guidance, we must limit the amount of time allotted to maximize physical distance and avoid congestion, especially in the lobbies, elevators, and hallways. To address these concerns, we will also limit the number of people who can enter the building to assist a student with the move-in process to two (2) individuals. 

  • For our new students: Incoming first year and transfer students will move in between September 7 through 9, 2020. HRE will include students’ assigned move-in date and time in the housing placement notification sent on July 27, 2020. 
  • For our returning students: Returning undergraduate students and graduate students will move-in between September 10 and 12, 2020. HRE will include students’ assigned move-in date and time in the email you will receive on July 27, 2020. Law School students can begin moving into the Auraria Student Lofts on August 12, 2020. Over the next few weeks, HRE will inform students about the time and duration of the move-in process. 

Students selected to live in University owned and/or operated FSL chapter facilities will also have staggered move-in times between September 9 and 13, 2020, Chapter leadership will schedule those times in coordination with FSL staff and will inform the students accordingly. 

All our on-campus and off-campus residential living communities will have Resident Assistants (RAs), programming, opportunities for connection, and support. In addition, the University continues to have 24-hour residential crisis management through HRE and the Division of Campus Safety and support available for our on-campus and off-campus residential living communities.

Students with disabilities who require additional time during move-in should submit requests through the Disability Services Program (DSP). For more information, please visit the DSP website, call 303-871-3241, or email
